According to Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manhã, Cape Verdean citizen José Vitoriano has been charged by Judiciary Police in the death of Jorge Cunha, who was found dead near the home in which he resided in São Mamede de Infesta.
The charges, which also include physical assault and refusal to provide assistance, are also being laid on the victim’s wife, who was involved in an amorous relationship with the Cape Verdean.
The two suspects were released on Tuesday after several hours of questioning. Judiciary Police are awaiting the results of the autopsy performed on Jorge Cunha to determine the exact cause of death.
According to the Correio da Manhã, the death apparently occurred during an argument that developed after the victim found his wife with José Vitoriano.
